DECA Scholars Need Your Thoughts!
A group of Hopkins DECA scholars are currently working with a food company in Minnesota on how they use data to personalize consumer experiences. They are specifically looking at the food company's loyalty app. The scholars need your opinions around the topic and have developed a survey that takes less than 3 minutes to complete.
The scholars would appreciate your time and opinions. They will evaluate the results of the survey to develop a strategic plan.

Seniors-Cap and Gown Orders
Your scholar is approaching a major milestone. Each senior has been emailed a unique link to order their cap and gown. Caps and gowns are free for scholars; however, they must complete the order form from our vendor that was sent to them. Scholars have until December 22nd to place their order. If your scholar has not placed their order by then, you will receive a separate email so that you may place the order.
Caps and gowns will be shipped to the high school and distributed closer to commencement. This school year, commencement will be held on Tuesday, June 6, at the University of Minnesota Maturi Sports Pavilion at 12:00pm. The address is: 1925 University Avenue SE, Minneapolis, MN 55455.
